Tea baggers showing their true colors

Meet Dr. David McKalip. He's a neurosurgeon in Florida who serves on the American Medical Association's House of Delegates, as well as the founder of several anti-healthcare reform groups and an occassional op-ed writer on said topic for the St. Petersburg Times.

Oh, and in his spare time he forwards racist pictures of the president to his buddies.


Yep, this struck the mediocre doc as humorous. And who did he pass this along to? His friends in the...wait for it...Tea Party movement!!
Naturally they're just disgusted and livid about thi...I'm sorry, what?

David, we all support you fully and are here for you. I can assure you of one thing and that is we will protect our own. We all have your back my friend!

Let me know what I can do to help. I am here for you if you need me David.

Amy Kremer

Who's Amy Kremer? Only the national coordinator of the Tea Party movement. And she's not backing down, because according to her and the doctor, this is all the fault of the liberal media.
Better protestors, please.

Despicable if you take it as racist. One could argue it was to portray his policies as voodoo and witchdoctor like. And where's the link to this story?

But hey, you showed the same outrage when a Huffington Post writer said that Palin would run on a retardation platform in 2012, right? I didn't see it on this website, but I'm sure you did.

Do all HuffPo readers/writers/commenters make fun of the mentally handicapped? Based on your reasoning, as you lumped all “teabaggers” in with your assertion (ie, headline: teabaggers showing their true colors), I can go ahead and say the same about Huffers right?

Rabble, you could be the poster child for false equivalents.

The HuffPo story was retracted so quickly I never saw it, even in my RSS feed. The only place I could find it was on conservative blogsites, like Freep.

Other than the superficial similarity it shares with the ObamaCare story in being pretty tasteless, it has no other attributes in common.

By the way, here's a link for you: Harry Shearer attempting to place ads for Songs of the Bushmen on Clear Channel billboards and being rejected because the ads are tasteless. Does the image look familiar?

If you take it as racist...for the love of God are you serious? If you don't take it as racist, you need some serious help. Of course, maybe if the teabaggers weren't holding up signs that said Nobama Bin Lyin or questioning the legitimacy of his presidency, then perhaps this could be taken in a different context.

Oh who am I kidding, you'd have to be a fucking idiot to take this in any other way than racist.

I think the people in need of the help are those that have (ahem) delicate sensibilities. You probably also through a hissyfit over the NY Post cartoon (that wasn't funny,but it also wasn't racist).

Anyone reading this will probably find themselves saying, "Amy Kremer, who?"

But people have heard of Barack Obama. And some of those same people who weren’t chanting Yes We Can! like a flock of sheeple, wonder why he has his own racial issues. We saw it on full display last week when he called a white cop stupid with having no firsthand knowledge of the situation. Of course, one can make the argument that he doesn’t hate white cops, just cops.

But go back further to find this fine quote by our President in 1995, "I think that whether you are a white executive living out in the suburbs, who doesn’t want to pay taxes to inner-city children for them to go to school…". A "white" executive? Why couldn't he have just said an "executive" in making his disturbed point when classifying all suburbinites (woops-white suburbinites) as hateful corporatists that hates black inner-city school children?

Also in need of help? People that attend a church where the Reverend and fellow congregants have palpable disdain for whites, America in general, and Jews.

But I suppose racism is only a one-way street, right?

Carry on with your bedwetting over some person named Amy Kremer. Americans don’t know her-she has no impact on their lives. But their President does. And they don’t like what they see right now. If you’d emerge from you liberal cocoon for two minutes you could see that.

Oh please, Jeremiah Wright? Are we really going down that road? Conversation ender, goodbye.

Rabble said...

Right. I shouldn't have mentioned that 20 year span of history in that man's life. Irrelevant. Nothing to see here. Move along please.

Basically what you've just said is that you're taking your ball and going home?

Good thing you have no traffic on this website. Otherwise you'd embarrass yourself to the general public.

You know, in retrospect, I probably shouldn't have cut it off because you mentioned one of my 'idiotic conversation enders'. There's plenty to tear apart in your post.

Carry on with your bedwetting over some person named Amy Kremer. Americans don’t know her-she has no impact on their lives.

So Kremer is irrelevant. And Kremer leads the Tea Party movement. So ergo, if she's irrelevant, then the movement itself must be irrelevant. Good, I'm glad we can agree that the Tea Parties were completely pointless and irrelevant.

Why couldn't he have just said an "executive" in making his disturbed point when classifying all suburbinites (woops-white suburbinites) as hateful corporatists that hates black inner-city school children?

Using the word "white" was a bad idea, but only in its redundancy. After all, 97% of senior managers of Fortune 500 companies are white, so saying "executives" on its own would have meant the same thing. It's kind of like describing someone as a "tall person over 7'0"'. Tall is a given for someone whose height is over 7'0". If that makes you feel better, knock yourself out.

Also in need of help? People that attend a church where the Reverend and fellow congregants have palpable disdain for whites, America in general, and Jews.

I think Obama made it pretty clear that he rejected the views of his former pastor, and distanced himself from him once it became clear that Wright wasn't remorseful. I'm sure that you've attended every service that your pastor/reverend/rabbi has ever delivered, and know every single thing he/she has ever said, so you're clearly in a position to judge whether Obama should have known as well. And I'm sure you were as outraged when McCain was courting the likes of the odious Revs. John Hagee and Rod Parsley.

You probably also through a hissyfit over the NY Post cartoon (that wasn't funny,but it also wasn't racist).

First, in my world we use the spelling "threw" in that context.

Spelling aside, this is the part I just can't understand from you righties. If you can honestly make excuses for the Post cartoon and the picture in this post, but get all worked up over a line in a speech 14 years ago (which you've provided no context for) and a sermon Obama's pastor gave eight years ago, then you're so blinded by your partisan beliefs that there's no way you can see straight on this issue.

Or, maybe you just find it funny to compare black people to chimps/gorillas/apes and witch doctors.

I think you've embarrassed yourself enough in public - or at least exposed yourself enough in public - in this conversation. Now take your traffic and go home.

Hey, Rabble,

Here are the people you're defending.

Good luck with that.
